Letter From the Publisher

By Dan Uslan, Spring 2016 Issue



Chicago is a city of constant reinvention. Whether it’s renovating historic Wrigley Field of swapping out Navy Pier’s iconic Ferris Wheel for an even bigger version of the storied attraction, the Windy City operates on a perpetual cycle of in-with-the-new, while preserving the old.


I’d like to think Michigan Avenue magazine embodies this spirit with our annual Ashore Thing celebration, presented by BMO Harris Bank. This signature event honors a cherished Chicago tradition—the Chicago Yacht Club’s Race to Mackinac—and adds to it with a family-friendly bash to cheer on the participating sailors. We’ll throw this summer-time soiree for the fifth time on July 23, 2016, beginning at 10 AM, with activities, libations, and more from Veuve Clicquot, Belvedere, Leinenkugel’s, Bob Loquercio Auto Group, CBS 2, Mackinac Island Tourism, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, and other great partners. Visit for information and updates.


Through August 5, we’ll also be toasting the consummate warm weather brew, Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy, with our exclusive social media contest. To participate, post your favorite #LeinieFridayContest office moment, be it making a makeshift beer-pong table out of a cubicle-mate’s desk or uncapping a six-pack on your office roof. The winning photo will receive a Leinenkugel’s happy hour experience with Leinie family members. For official rules and how to enter, visit


Also on the horizon? Wedding season. Stay up to date on the latest matrimonial trends with our newly introduced bridal section, starting on page 163, featuring Linly Designs, Eli’s Cheesecake, Paramount Events, The Sofitel, the Radisson Blu, and more. As these impresarios prove, even the oldest of traditions can use some fresh vantage points.
